Recently a few times when I am lying on my bed trying to sleep or waking up from my sleep, my heart beats strongly. Do I have a heart problem?

In brief: No, unless

it happens frequently (10/minute) or continuously (multiple in a row before stopping).
They are likely benign, ventricular or atrial premature beats which we all experience.
